HIGHLIGHTS

  • 14:13 (IST)

    MOMINUL HAQUE: Definitely a bit concerned and its very disappointing for everyone. We have to learn from the last two games and not repeat mistakes. I think the Pink Ball was challenging especially it moved a lot with the new ball. If I look back, there were positives. Ebadot bowled really well and Mushy (bhai) and Liton showed what they can do with the bat. Indore was a dry wicket and I don't think it would make any difference whether we batted first or bowled first.

  • 14:06 (IST)

    WRIDDHIMAN SAHA: In the last 3-4 years, we have had an amazing pace attack, all 140+. We have been successful outside and at home. It has been wobbling and swinging all that, especially under lights. It's not that only spin is dominant now for India. I've never tried anything specifically for the conditions in terms of keeping, just tried to do the basic right. Bumrah is number one on the list - after than Shami, Umesh, Ishant in that order, but didn't really struggle much.

  • 13:58 (IST)

    BHARAT ARUN: The fact that they take a lot of pride in each others' performance, not just in theirs, so that's the secret behind the pack. They work on the basics a lot. We are an experienced bowling attack, and the beauty is how quickly they adapt to situations. I thought they adapted beautifully to these conditions. New Zealand will be a good challenge and we are really looking forward to it.

  • 13:48 (IST)

    INDIA WIN: Umesh Yadav has a fifer here. He gets the wicket of Al-Amin. And India have won the match by an innings and 46 runs. And India have won their seventh match on the trot. 

  • 13:38 (IST)

    OUT! The big one! Mushfiqur Rahim tries to slog Umesh through the off-side but ends up giving Jadeja a simple catch. Bangladesh are 8 down now.  

  • 13:33 (IST)

    Four & Four! Rahim's taking the attack to India who have brought in Jadeja. Rahim reverse sweeps powerfully over point and into the fence and then the traditional sweep to deep square leg. India yet to get a wicket through spin in the Test. 

  • 13:24 (IST)

    Four! Umesh Yadav's bounced Rahim and after missing out on the delivery before he's made no mistake this time. Pulls it away to fine leg promptly. 

  • 13:09 (IST)

    OUT! Ebadot Hossain can't fend of the Umesh bouncer and it's a simple catch to Virat Kohli in the slips. That's the seventh wicket down for Bangladesh. 

  • 12:52 (IST)

    We're almost ready for Day 3 of the Pink ball Test at the Eden Gardens. India need four wickets and Bangladesh need to bat and bat and bat to save face. How long can they keep India out? 

  • 11:20 (IST)

    Hello and welcome  to the third day of the second Test between India and Bangladesh. India just needs four wickets to win the match, and hence the series. It's been a clinical performance by them till now and fast bowlers have been exceptional. This would be India's seventh successive win, a record for them in Test.

13:48 (IST)

INDIA WIN: Umesh Yadav has a fifer here. He gets the wicket of Al-Amin. And India have won the match by an innings and 46 runs. And India have won their seventh match on the trot. 

13:46 (IST)

Indian bowlers for some reason are pitching the ball short. Al-Amin goes away from the stumps and throws his bat behind the ball. The ball goes past the slip cordon for a four. Bangladesh are 195/8. 

13:38 (IST)

OUT! The big one! Mushfiqur Rahim tries to slog Umesh through the off-side but ends up giving Jadeja a simple catch. Bangladesh are 8 down now.  

13:35 (IST)

Bangladesh have slowly moved on to 184/7 here in the second innings and are 58 runs behind India. Can the late charge make India bat again? 

13:33 (IST)

Four & Four! Rahim's taking the attack to India who have brought in Jadeja. Rahim reverse sweeps powerfully over point and into the fence and then the traditional sweep to deep square leg. India yet to get a wicket through spin in the Test. 

13:31 (IST)

An outside edge and then a bottom edge, first to deep point and then to fine leg gives Al-Amin eight runs from Ishant's over. He's doing his best to give Rahim some company here. India yet to bring on the spinner today. Ashwin's bowled only 5 overs in the innings and Jadeja nothing yet. 

13:24 (IST)

Four! Umesh Yadav's bounced Rahim and after missing out on the delivery before he's made no mistake this time. Pulls it away to fine leg promptly. 

13:20 (IST)

Mushfiqur is keeping his end going and picks up three runs of the Ishant over including a single of the last ball. Meanwhile Sanjay Manjrekar and Harsha Bhogle are having an interesting conversation about the Pink Ball and how it affects the game in commentary. India still ahead by 78 runs. 

13:13 (IST)

Al-Amin's cops a blow to the head, the back of the helmet from Umesh Yadav, and Bangladesh collect four runs. The doctors had a look at Al-Amin and he seems fine for now at least. 

13:09 (IST)

OUT! Ebadot Hossain can't fend of the Umesh bouncer and it's a simple catch to Virat Kohli in the slips. That's the seventh wicket down for Bangladesh. 

13:08 (IST)

Maiden over from Ishant Sharma at the other end to Mushfiqur Rahim, who did step out and look for the big hit midway through the over. Bangladesh are 152/6 and 89 runs behind India.

13:02 (IST)

Ebadot Hossain just about survives those three deliveries from Umesh. Will Mahmudullah come out to bat today, Bangladesh will hope he can throw his bat around a bit at least. 

13:00 (IST)

Umesh Yadav will continue his over from last evening on the third day now and bowl three more deliveries as the packed Eden crowd cheers him on. Like Harsha Bhogle says we don't know how long this will last but this is a good sight! 

12:52 (IST)

We're almost ready for Day 3 of the Pink ball Test at the Eden Gardens. India need four wickets and Bangladesh need to bat and bat and bat to save face. How long can they keep India out? 

12:46 (IST)

Bangladesh were shot out for 106 in their first innings in a sorry display of batting. Ganguly said they don't have key players. Bangladesh are without regular captain Shakib Al Hasan and experienced opener Tamim Iqbal. "They don't have 4-5 main players," he said. Ganguly remained non-committal on whether India will play a pink ball Test in Australia next year.

12:35 (IST)

"I will go. I know you have gala plans for the event," he said. Ganguly, who was the man behind India agreeing to play a pink ball test after initial resistance, said the success of the first day lay in the fact that 60,000 spectators watched the action. "So many watched the match that is most important. I was not under any tension but I was busy."

12:25 (IST)

Asked how the Indian captain aced the pink ball challenge, Ganguly said: "He is a run machine." On the visibility, he said: "It's actually easier than the red ball." Ganguly thanked Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina for her presence on Friday, and promised to be present at the two T20Is between Asian all-star XI and World XI next year to celebrate the 100th birth anniversary of the Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.

12:09 (IST)

BCCI president and former India captain Sourav Ganguly feels sighting the pink ball is easier than its traditional red avatar. Visibility of the heavily-lacquered ball especially during the twilight period has been a talking point ahead of the country's first Day-Night Test. Kohli, who slammed his 27th Test ton on Day 2 and was dismissed for 136, batted throughout the "twilight zone" on the first day without facing any difficulty although against a weak Bangladesh bowling attack.

12:00 (IST)

Having faced both Kookaburra (Duleep Trophy) and SG pink balls, Pujara said the latter swings a bit more and also gives assistance to the spinners. "This ball is travelling fast from the bat like Kookaburra but SG swings a little bit more. Again there's not much assistance for spinners with Kookaburra but we saw both Ashwin and Taijul spinning the ball here. There's little assistance for spinners but it still not as much as the red ball."

11:49 (IST)

"That (twilight) was the right time to bowl. The ball was swinging and we thought we can pick up early wickets. That was the right time and the dew wasn't there. Dew started after tea time." Pujara said the ideal time to bat with the pink ball is at the start of the innings and late into the final session. "It's a mix of both. Once dew comes in it again becomes easier. It's the first couple of hours and maybe the last hour," Pujara said.

11:40 (IST)

"Batting under lights was difficult but when we start playing under lights, it's a bit more challenging. The first session is slightly easier to bat when there are no lights. But when the lights come into play, the ball starts swinging a bit more. It's the most testing times of the day. It's easy to sight the ball under sunlight," Pujara said after the second day's proceedings. India declared their first innings at 347 for nine and then took quick four wickets before Bangladesh fought back with Mushfiqur Rahim's 59 not out.

11:31 (IST)

India batsman Cheteshwar Pujara on Saturday said facing the pink ball under lights, especially at twilight, was the most difficult task during their maiden Day/Night Test against Bangladesh here.​ Pujara, who boasts of a double century with the pink ball at the domestic level, became the first Indian to score a fifty in a Day/Night Test but failed to convert his 55 into a bigger score on Friday.

11:20 (IST)

Hello and welcome  to the third day of the second Test between India and Bangladesh. India just needs four wickets to win the match, and hence the series. It's been a clinical performance by them till now and fast bowlers have been exceptional. This would be India's seventh successive win, a record for them in Test. 

India vs Bangladesh, 2nd Test Match at Kolkata, Day 3 Highlights: As it Happened

India vs Bangladesh 2nd Test, Latest Updates:Indian bowlers for some reason are pitching the ball short. Al-Amin goes away from the stumps and throws his bat behind the ball. The ball goes past the slip cordon for a four. Bangladesh are 195/8.

REVIEW DAY TWO: A ton from skipper Virat Kohli and another inspired bowling spell from Ishant Sharma saw India ended the second day of the pink ball Test against Bangladesh in Kolkata on the brink of a victory and series whitewash. Kohli scored 136 as India declared at 347-9 before Ishant took four wickets to leave Bangladesh reeling at 152-6 at stumps on Day 2 on Saturday (November 23).

Bangladesh trail India by 89 runs and will have to put in an inspired batting performance if they are to save the Test. India started off the second innings with an intimidating slip cordon of four slips and a gully. Ishant got the breakthrough on the fifth ball, trapping Shadman Islam before Bangladesh could open their account. He then returned and sent back Bangladesh skipper Mominul Haque, who edged one behind without bothering the scorecard.

Umesh Yadav accounted for Mohammad Mithun after tea before Ishant got rid of Imrul Kayes to leave Bangladesh reeling. Mahmudullah and Mushfiqur Rahim then blunted India’s pace attack and managed to fight back nicely, putting together a fifty-run stand that ended only when the former retired hurt due to a tweaked hamstring. Mehidy Hasan (15) and Taijul Islam (22) got starts but were removed by Ishant and Umesh, respectively.

For his part, Mushfiqur was close to being out thrice – twice he was given out LBW before successfully reviewing it and once he survived a run-out attempt. Earlier, resuming at 59, skipper Kohli looked at his sublime best as he brought up his 27th Test century. While Kohli pushed Taijul Islam for a double in the square leg region to bring up his hundred, his deputy Ajinkya Rahane (51) too looked in good touch, striking his fourth successive half-century.

Rahane was done in by some extra bounce as he top-edged a Taijul delivery to be holed out at point. But Kohli, who had become the first Indian skipper to go past the 5000-run mark in the longest format, grew from strength to strength en route to his 70th International hundred. Kohli hit top gear after his hundred, smashing Bangladeshi pacer Abu Jayed for four successive boundaries. His knock, which had 18 boundaries, ended when Taijul threw himself to his right to pluck a catch out of thin air.

With this century, Kohli equalled Ricky Ponting's record of most hundreds -- 41 -- as captain in International cricket. Kohli had come to the crease under lights with India in a tricky 43/2 inside 13 overs on a day when the Indian openers had a rare failure. India eventually declared their innings at 347-9 just as Bangladesh’s pacers were beginning to see some movement with the pink ball to take a healthy lead of 241 runs.
